Nice b&b, with kind owners doing more than enough for a good stay! We got all sorts of information about the town and the parts were we was going. The rooms was nice, and had a feeling of "home".

Friendly welcome, nice room and delicious breakfast. Lorraine is a perfect and very nice hostess. The B&B is situated ten minutes from the city centre and 2 minutes from the railway station, perfect for exploring Cork and the nearby towns.

Stayed here last night with 2 kids, room was lovely, clean and comfortable. Was even a playstation in the room which was a major bonus for the kids. Breakfast was lovely. The owners were a lovely friendly couple. Highly recommended the b&b for a stay.

After a "white-knuckled' ride in the pouring rain from Dublin to Cork, my first meeting with Lorraine ( the lovely owner of the Kent House), she moved my car for me because she knew I didn't want to get back in it! Then she helped us with ours bags! Talk about full service! Lovely clean, quiet rooms. I can't say... More

My wife and I stayed at the Kent House Bed and BReakfast during our honeymoon. The owners were very kind, and our room was modern and comfortable. The breakfast was very good as well.

I can't say enough about how much I enjoyed my stay at Kent House! My best friend and I walked from the bus station with our luggage, so they let us check in early.

Convenient location right by main railway station, just a few minutes walk from city centre. Very helpful and friendly hosts. I had a triple room for single use - plenty of space, furnishings fairly basic but comfortable. Excellent cooked breakfast.

The room and bathroom were in great shape with a view out back to the rail station. Best towels on a long trip staying in many fine places. The room was quiet--heard no train nor cars on the road in front. Breakfast was excellent. The hosts were as congenial as could be and quite helpful. One couldn't ask for better.... More
